In this post, Mirco Bundschuh talks about a recently granted DFG-project “The relevance of the BIOdiversity TO FUNction relationship in heterotrophic aquatic systems under stress” with the unusual acronym “BIO2FUN”.
With great wine comes great responsibility! Therefore, the working group “Quantitative Landscape Ecology” offers several projects/theses in a DFG-funded field study analysing effects of fungicide contamination on fungal communities and microbial leaf decomposition.
The Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) in Leipzig offers four PhD positions within the integrated project “Linking catchment scale nutrient export to pelagic, benthic and hyporheic ecosystem functioning across stressor gradients”.
In this post, we talk about our recently published paper “Transient effects following peak exposures towards pesticides – an explanation for the unresponsiveness of in situ measured functional variables”.
Jochen Zubrod provides his impressions on his visit at the 8th Meeting on Plant Litter Processing in Freshwaters (PLPF8) at the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, Spain.
In this post, we talk about our recently published paper “Long-term effects of fungicides on leaf-associated microorganisms and shredder populations – an artificial stream study”.
In this post, Alexander Feckler talks about his recently published paper “Quantitative real-time PCR as a promising tool for the detection and quantification of leaf-associated fungal species – A proof-of-concept using Alatospora pulchella”.
In this post, Patrick Baudy reports on their recent paper on reproductive effects of fungicides in shredders.
In this post, we offer a Research Project Course (RPC)/Bachelor thesis on analyzing samples from a joint project with the German Environmental Protection Agency (Umweltbundesamt; UBA). Continue reading
